A Note From Joey and Maggie: Please Stand By
Tuesday doesn't look much better as Joey has an appointment with a specialty vet for an abdominal ultrasound before he starts his complicated and dangerous treatment for Cushing's Disease. We had no idea that Cushing's was prominent in Dachshunds, you don't hear about it too much. Prognosis isn't that great, but knowing is half the battle as they say. Left untreated it can lead to more serious issues. Maggie is showing early signs of the disease as well. Give your four-legged friends a big hug.
Here's a little primer on Cushing's Disease. There is a great website out there called K9Cushings which has links to informative articles on the subject if you're interested in learning about this disease which apparently affects many Dachshunds.
Yours in Dachshund Love,
Joey and Maggie.....
